We collected the tent and straightaway had a trial erection in the back garden. Of the tent! Look if you’re going to read everything with that sort of slant well I’m sorry this isn’t the sort of thing for you to be reading… LOL!
The tent was, and I quote, ‘damn easy to put up.’ Once it was up (in the back garden), we did what all boys of a certain age should do – yes that’s right, we had an overnight-er in it. I didn’t note who, but I’m presuming that it was my brother and our friend who joined me in it. In a shocking disregard for our need for sleep (isn’t being a teenager just MAD eh?), we didn’t go tot sleep until 12.30am!
